In Wednesday’s Pictures in the News, Orbital Sciences Corp.’s unmanned Antares rocket explodes shortly after takeoff at NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility on Wallops Island, Va. on Tuesday. No injuries were reported following the first catastrophic launch in NASA’s commercial spaceflight effort.

Pahoa, Hawaii: Lava flows in the open field below Cemetery Road on the Big Island of Hawaii. Dozens of residents in this rural area of Hawaii were placed on alert as flowing lava continued to advance. Authorities on Sunday said lava had advanced about 250 yards since Saturday morning and was moving at the rate of about 10 to 15 yards an hour, consistent with its advancement in recent days. The flow front passed through a predominantly Buddhist cemetery, covering grave sites in the mostly rural region of Puna, and was roughly a half-mile from Pahoa Village Road, the main street of Pahoa.

Habur, Turkey: Kurds in Turkey greet peshmerga convoys at the Habur crossing along the Turkish-Iraqi border. Heavily armed Kurdish peshmerga fighters were on their way by land and by air, joining militias defending the Syrian border town of Kobani, also known as Ain al-Arab, from the Islamic State group after setting off from Iraq. Kobani’s Kurdish defenders have been eagerly waiting for the peshmerga since Turkey last week said it would allow them to traverse its territory to enter the town.

And there’s more from around the world.
